The essential guide to having a baby in Ireland

Peter Boylan

Dr Peter Boylan, MAO, FRCPI, FRCOG, is a retired consultant obstetrician/gynaecologist. He practiced at the National Maternity Hospital in Holles Street, Dublin, where he was Master from 1991 to 1998.

Jennifer Walsh

Dr. Jennifer Walsh, MB PhD MRCOG FRCPI, is a Consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at both The National Maternity and Mater Misericordiae University Hospitals in Dublin. She is Subspecialist in Maternal-Fetal Medicine with a focus on high-risk obstetric care and prenatal ultrasound.

We had first hand experience of Dr Boylan’s reassuringly no-nonsense manner ... he shot down all the internet research-driven, anxiety riddled questions [we] managed to dig up, in a firm, but kind, reassuring manner. This book makes that approach available to everyone. Do yourself a favour, buy it and avoid Google.
